President's Rule has been imposed in the state of Maharashtra after the approval of President Ram Nath Kovind on November 12. While addressing a press conference in Mumbai on November 12, Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray reacted on a reporter's question who asked 'Is the BJP option completely finished?'. Thackeray said, "Why are you in such a hurry? It is politics and six months time has been given (President's Rule). I didn't finish the BJP option and it was BJP itself which did that."
